   I can't seem to find a way to solve my problem. Maybe you can point me to 
a document, a prior post or simply answer my questions :-)

   I configured samba in FC4 to authenticate to a MS Windows ADS, seems to 
work fine, and by using winbind, Windows users can login into the linux 
machine, but without a home directory.

  Q1: How do I enable the linux machine to use the user's home directory 
from the windows server  ?

  Q2: I shared a directory in the samba server but the windows machines 
(both servers and Workstations) cannot access the share. I get the password 
request but the authentication fails.

   Thanks in advance.
